Posted in: Suga says shorter hours for bars, restaurants crucial in stemming coronavirus spread See in context

I keep on walking past small Tokyo restaurants in residential areas and they are packed well before 10pm so closing early is not really going to do much and who ever came up with the idea of Goto Eat should be fired as they should have been pushing restraint and sensible social distancing not encouraging people to pack out restaurants . Only ways things will improve is with a vaccine so I hope the Japanese regulators will pass their aproval quickly.

So why aren't the hospitals over filling like America if the numbers are so high here like most of the posters here are claiming.

All local restaurants need to be supported now and hopefully the Japanese government will approve one of the vaccines soon and not take for ever like they usually do.

Its simple they locked down quickly and that stopped mainland Chinese from infecting everyone. Japan was too slow.

I am sure that they didn't reduce the price at all so this means is a profit issue for them and I am sure everyone will forget this soon and continue to buy.

Life and business must go on, if you are high risk because of health issues then isolate and wait for a vaccine. Bankruptcies will hurt more people.

What a charade Suga was picked a long time ago. Why bother going through this pretend vote, shows how dishonest politicians and they know no one will complain.

I am sure the lock down loonies and anti Japan posters will still find a way to be negative about this low number. For the people that live, work and make a living in Tokyo this is good news.

It's really quite simple can we believe anything Trump says as he is always telling lies.

Posted in: Trial of former Nissan exec Kelly to start Sept 15 See in context

System is rigged in Japan to support the prosecution and the judges nearly always side with them so I don't think Kelly has much chance. On a positive note white collar crime usually ends up with a suspended sentence so he probably wont do any time although pleading not guilty doesn't go down well here.

Good news Japan, if we listened to most of JT posters we would be in a worse place now and i am sure they would be happy about that.

Why is Roppongi singled out ? I am often there and don't see many people drinking on the street where as Shibuya has many people doing that.

Posted in: Tokyo reports 211 new coronavirus cases; nationwide tally 612 See in context

Just under 3.8% percent of those tested are positive. Higher than the U.K., which is less than 1%, and most of Western Europe, with the exception of a Spain and Portugal, and Australia.

Don't you people get it the reason the percent is high in Japan is because you only get tested if you have symptoms or have been around a cluster. If you test everyone then of course the percent will be very low.

Seems many posters here really want Japan to suffer like many other countries, we are lucky to live here as not much chance to get infected and life is quite normal with no extreme lock-downs.

Singapore is much more compatible for expats

I have many banker friends who had to move to Singapore and would love to move back to Tokyo. The amount of taxes they would contribute and spend would be good for the economy.

Nothing will change here as Suga has already be chosen as the next prime minister and he will be thrown under the bus just before the next election. He will then retire quietly with some nice benefits. Nothing ever changes in Japanese politics as the same people always pull the strings from behind.

As numbers are stabilizing time to go out and support some local businesses as they need our help. Although still best to avoid small busy places.

Why are so many people fixated on testing everyone. Death rates and hospitalization are still low so why waste time and money on testing people with no symptoms. Japan seems to have it under control compared to the USA.

Well more lower numbers so the explosion of infections many people were predicting hasn't happened yet. Imagine the economic damage if we had needlessly locked down again.
